Women in Tech Africa Toronto: Discussing Barriers, Discovering Opportunities
Date: October 19, 2016
Time: 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
SAP Labs Canada, in partnership with ACCES Employment and Women in Tech Africa invite you to join us for a day of conversation on women in technology.
At SAP, we believe that a rich mix of gender perspectives helps drives our innovation and enables us to better serve our customers. Yet, in Africa, technology is still a male dominated field. Many women in Africa do not feel empowered to pursue a career in the sector and those who do can often find it a challenging and isolating experience. Through this event we seek to bring together newcomer women from Africa, and female members of the African diaspora to discuss the barriers they face to entering the tech sector and consider solutions. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from business leaders on these topics, receive a tour of SAP’s Toronto lab and also participate in a speed mentoring activity with SAP employees. To ensure a richness of conversation, this event is open to both job seekers and those who are already employed.
9:30am Arrival at SAP Labs Toronto (100 Consilium Place, Suite 400)
9:45 – 10:45am Panel discussion (Panelists to be announced)
